Our 50th Performer of the Week!: John Ellison

For our 50th Performer of the Week, we've decided to go with a legend: John Ellison.

He is the songwriting genius behind one of the biggest and most recorded soul songs of all time: Some Kind of Wonderful. The classic hit was first performed with his band Soul Brothers Six, where it reached the Billboard Top 100.

Born in Montgomery, West Virginia, Ellison currently resides in the Hamilton area where he still records and performs. He's also been recognized in his new hometown with a Hamilton Music Award nomination.

In addition to his amazing music, the singer spends time as a businessman running the Some Kind of Wonderful Food and Restaurant Companies.
